Underwater cameras have been installed in Cohasset Bay for investigators from MIT SeaGrant: Carolina Bastidas and Juliet Simpson. The cameras will be used to monitor the diversity of aquatic life around eel grass beds. This project is using GoPro cameras with custom time-lapse controls to capture hourly images of the boundaries of eel grass beds. The cameras are at a depth of 10-20 feet, depending on the tide. They have been deployed for the summer of 2016. Images will be used for research and to support classes at MIT.
